JfL CORE, a live training event consisting of interactive facilitation, engaging group discussions, and challenging exercises led by JfL staff and experienced leaders, will guide you and your team through the necessary steps to plan, start and sustain a Jobs for Life class at your church or organization and help you prepare men and women for meaningful work in your community.
(JfL CORE Training is required for new sites that have never led a JfL class. At least two individuals from your organization are required to attend if you have never led a JfL class.)
Key Features of JfL CORE:
- Step by step plan to implement Jobs for Life in your ministry
- Strategies to recruit and retain participants, volunteers, and businesses
- Tools to train and build a strong volunteer base

- Opportunities to connect with JfL leaders from around the country

To complement this training, each Site that completes JfL CORE will receive a two-hour Debriefing Coaching Session after facilitating its first class with a Certified Trainer to discuss a S.W.O.T. Analysis. The Certified Trainer will assess the findings and submit a detailed report to the Site Leader with suggested next steps.
